  2. Out of curiosity, is it possible to use :map 'octave along with tonality-series function? (setf modes '(dorian lydian)) (setf roots '(d4 g4)) (setf path (tonality-series modes :root roots)) (setf voice '((c4 es4 g4 fs4 a4 g4 b4) (c4 es4 g4 fs4 a4 g4 b4))) (setf mel-path (tonality-map '(path :map octave) voice)) My apologies if I'm not asking it in the right way. Thank you!

  4. I wonder if anyone has a suggestion on producing this list (with sublists) in Opusmodus, in which the first number decreases in value, the second number stays the same, and the third number increases in value? Thank you! ( (7) (3) (6) (3) (1) (5) (3) (2) (4) (3) (3) (3) (3) (4) (2) (3) (5) (1) (3) (6) (3) (7) )
  5. Hi Ole - my name is Peter Measroch from Electric Desert Music, Edesert is my forum name, and I would be very happy to continue on this basis. Hope you are successful in putting the group together. My email is pmeasroch@mac.com and my phone number here in Montreal is +1 514 898-9972 I think the 50 euros is a good way to go and I could send via email or PayPal. Fingers crossed for more sessions with Stéphane! best wishes, Peter

  7. I've tried a bit Ircam instruments2 but still feel a lack of dynamics variety... S.
  8. i have been working with conTimbre for a long time and it is exactly what i was looking for. playing techniques can easily be done by OPMO or SIBELIUS (vst3) via program changes. it has a great many different playing techniques. I always found IRCAM_LIB to be very inadequate, as there were not enough playing techniques etc. / you can also control CT via OSC (and as standalone or via MAXMSP). when I wrote for ensemble with additional e-player, CT-live always worked very well. (The only negative point I could say is that there are a few SAMPLES that weren't played / recorded very wel
  9. It looks like conTimbre would be a considerably larger collection of articulations and also better documented (e.g., I guess if you play a certain multiphonic you are able to learn how it was produced or vice versa, which is not the case with the IRCAM Solo Instruments), but its playability as a plugin from Opusmodus or a DAW seems to be less developed. In case you played already with it: how well does the latter work, now that they have support for VST and AU plugins?
  10. As I was making the last update I didn't make changes to one of the scores in the Examples folder in the Quick Start workspace. Please replace the Counterpoint.opmo file - which you find in the ~/Opusmodus/Quick Start/Examples directory - with this one: Counterpoint.opmo Best wishes, keep save, Janusz
  11. Update: It seems the samples are the same as in version 1 (which are now > 10 years old and with the original problems like rel. few samples i.e. few velocity layers or no round robins to avoid machine gun effect and all very closely miked), but now the scripting and instrument is much improved, e.g., with legato phrasing now supported, streching/shrinking notes like transitions, a timbre control (e.g., could be used for avoiding the machine gun effect). However, reviews report that these new scripts are not perfect, e.g., key swit
  12. Like this it works, there is perhaps a better way?! best Stefan ; Darstellung der Obertonreihe in Hertz (Setf harm1 (harmonics 'c2 64 :type :hertz)) ; in Notation mit 8tel-Tönen (hertz-to-pitch harm1 :quantize 1/8)
  13. Hi, I have a simple question, how can I change the resolution of harmonics to quarter tones or sixth tones. (harmonics 'e1 10) thanks! ole
  14. A possibility is to use plogue Bidule to create a kind of meta-instrument with keyswitch to switch from classical to extended techniques. I will have a look. S.
  15. I would very much appreciate some feedback, but I am already almost decided to get it in any case. We might perhaps work on an Opusmodus sound set together. I will only use a few instruments (currently I just need the cello), but would like to make a wide range of techniques available in Opusmodus. However, instrument key-switches etc. hopefully share patterns, so once one instrument is reasonably covered it should be possible to scale that at least for the other instruments in the same family. One problem might be that they keep standard (what they call classic) and
  16. Hi, yes I have this lib but still not used it really and still not did any soundest for it. But I will investigate in future. Best S.
  17. Hi guys, Did anyone of you already look into the rather new IRCAM Solo Instruments 2 by UVI? That might be nice to control from within Opusmodus with its wide range of extended techniques available. From what I can tell from the videos, this seems to be a clear improvement over the former version and also conTimbre in terms of sounds and playability. Anyone already tried it?

  18. Hi all, I would like to continue with the 'Zoom into OM' sessions and would like to ask if there are other people who are also interested and are willing to pay for it? If we get minimum 6 participants together and everybody is paying 10€ per session we can ask Stéphane to continue. To have a little planning certainty, I thought about that everybody is paying 50€ so we can have a serie of 5 sessions (and then make a new collection/appointment).. And I think we can have sessions on topics that the participants are suggesting.. If that sounds convincing to you, please
  19. Hi, The values for density control has to be between something greater than 0, for example 0.01, and 1.00. Here's a better code: (setf size (car (rnd-number 1 12 32))) (setf psets '(c4 fs4 g4 e4 gs4 f4 a4 cs5 ds5 as4 d5 b4)) ;;; RHYTHM (setf dens-tend (vector-round 0.01 1.00 (pitch-to-integer psets))) (setf dens1 (vector-round 0 100 (gen-tendency size dens-tend))) (setf dens2 (vector-round 0 100 (gen-tendency size dens-tend))) (setf dens3 (vector-round 0 100 (gen-tendency size dens-tend))) (setf dens4 (vector-round 0 100 (gen-tendency size dens-tend))) (setf den
  20. Stéphane, Sorry for another question. I'm experimenting with several ideas - very inspiring session! Instead of white noise vectors for dens-tend, I tried using a pitch row instead (see psets) to control various parameters in the piece. I used pitch-to-integer to get the numerical representation of pitches. The code below works most of the time: (setf size (car (rnd-number 1 12 32))) (setf psets '(c4 fs4 g4 e4 gs4 f4 a4 cs5 ds5 as4 d5 b4)) ;;; RHYTHM (setf dens-tend (pitch-to-integer psets)) (setf dens1 (vector-round 0 100 (gen-tendency size dens-tend))) (setf d
  21. Thanks a lot Torsten. The *do-verbose* trick works for me. - Rangarajan
  22. BTW: Common Lisp has built-in tracing mechanisms, which happen to be more fine-grained and work automatically without any need to sprinkle explicit function calls like do-verbose in any definition at all. For example, there is the builtin trace: CLHS: Macro TRACE, UNTRACE CLHS.LISP.SE In case of an error (and only in case of an error), a full stack trace is usually automatically printed. This happens to be disabled in the standard Opusmodus editor, but works as normally in Common Lisp when using the Emacs Slime interface. For example, consid

  24. Just evaluate this. (defparameter *do-verbose* nil "Enable or disable traces printed by do-verbose.") For some context see
  25. When I execute some code in the editor, trace messages appear in the Listener pane. Is there any way to disable the printing of these messages? When I run a large piece of code, it seems to me that these debug messages introduce some delay before the actual code is executed. Of course, these are very useful for debugging, but, it would be nice to have an option to turn these off when not required. - Rangarajan
